Enchanted Forest Water Safari gears up for re-opening
By Jamie Organski
Enchanted Forest Water Safari has been given the green light to reopen the doors to the water park beginning on Friday, June 18 for the summer season of 2021. The popular Old Forge attraction was closed in 2020 due to the pandemic.
Ticket and season passes are currently available for purchase on the water park’s website. More details pertaining to ticket sale options will be shared once water park management receives additional guidance from the state, according to Katie Wojdyla, Enchanted Forest Water Safari Vice President & Director of Marketing.
“We are thrilled,” Wojdyla said. “It is great to have clarity that we can open. It’s a step in the right direction and we are most excited to introduce our three new water rides [Mamba Strike, Killermanjaro’s Revenge, and Serengeti Stampede.]”
The water park team is still waiting on guidance from New York state, which is expected in the next couple of weeks, according to Wojdyla.
“We anticipate most of what you are seeing today with social distancing, masks (except on water rides), increased cleaning, etc.” Wojdyla said. “We also anticipate that temperature [checks] and [health] screenings will need to take place prior to entry. Masks will need to be worn in the park, except on water rides and in pools or while seated. More specifics will be available once we have the guidelines.”
Enchanted Forest Water Safari is currently hiring for all positions for the summer season as well as many specialty positions at the water park, Calypso’s Cove, the Old Forge Camping Resort and Water’s Edge Inn. Applicants can apply online at https://www.watersafari.com/jobs/.
